New release date for Spinward Traveller, other projects
The project creator has released an update that states the "new" release date for Spinward Traveller and similar projects have been moved up/delayed until August 2017. Details and commentary are available on the comments section. I am posting the text below with names, harsh language and contact information redacted/removed. I did not correct creator's spelling or grammar. I have posted the text of the Spinward Traveller update below:


Dear backers:

We have set a new release date for August 1, 2017. Of course we hope to get your project to you way before that date, but would rater surprise you then disappoint you again.
Sorry it has taken so long, there have been many sit backs in my life, and there are a few backers that actually follow and harass me online, effecting my ability to make a living and produce this product.

Although their actions are highly illegal it it very difficult to enforce laws across state lines without spending money, AND I would prefer to spend said money on this project instead. Some of these harassment include copywrite infringement, libel, slander, contacting employers, contacting loved ones, and even contact my children.

So please, if you have a problem with me, contact me at [redacted], OR at least be civilized and use our current court system if you believe I have wronged you in anyway. There are much better ways of handing a situation then cyberstalking, and harassing my loved ones.

I have updated the IMDB page tonight, however it will take a few days to fix itself. I will update you when I have downloads for you guys.
My sincerest apology for letting you down on the timeline, BUT I am going to finish this project. I have NOT given up and you will see this wonderful project.
If you would like to ask questions about the project below, please feel free to post them. I will most likely only answer questions I feel help clarify information about this project.

Here's the same announcement from the "other side of the hill" so to speak.

While the truth usually lies somewhere between two conflicting statements, given Whitman's track record and legal troubles, I'd be hesitant to believe anything he writes.

I was hesitant, also. But the text of the update (and the future release date) was all I really wanted to pass on.
I encourage other backers to visit the project page and read for themselves.

Thanks for the edit. :)

There will be no release.

Whitman's message is the latest excuse and not the latest "update".


Thanks for the edit. :)
Not an edit, just a link to another source.

I wouldn't believe this proven con-man if he told me the sky was blue.

The words in this "update" seem to repeat elements of past updates

And we roll for saving throw... Whew. Yes, GM says we don't believe the intel given to us by the untrustworthy agent from the shady mega-corp.

While we, the staff, understand the frustration of the backers, please, remember no insults (group or personal) are allowed in this board

The creator did update the IMDb entry to reflect the news. There is a link to other film projects as well.

So, here's the latest:

"Spinward Traveller More like Marc Miller & FFE are taking over distribution, so I can't speak for him. I am sure he will announce it when the duck are in a row. NOW, Mongo just pawn in game of life."

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 10:04 PM.
